The thoughts going through a parents mind as they download the app and making their kids do so as well is:
(1) now I can catch my kid(s) if they are sneaking out! (2) I can see if they go where they say they’re really going (3) I can track exactly where they are at all times of day.
Now while I understand the wanting to make sure my kids are honest and know that they are safe, there are OTHER WAYS OF KNOWING THESE THINGS THAN BY KEEPING A TRACKING DEVICE ON MY KIDS PHONE!!! Forcing your child to get the app, and stalking them at all hours of the day results in a feeling of betrayal, and the thought of “Wow. My mom(s)/dad(s) really don’t trust me? After all I’ve done to try and PROVE them to trust me?” These thoughts resulting from the app give a feeling of betrayal to these kids, resulting in a tense relationship between kids and their parents! You see, all a family wants is for everyone in it to be happy, healthy, and close. Now how can we all be happy, healthy, and close, when a parents lack trust results in a kids lack of trust? A kids lack of trust in parents is honestly one of the most devastating things to happen between a family. When a kid lacks trust in their parents, they don’t feel safe. They don’t feel safe to share how they’re feeling, what goes on at school, if they’ve changed their sexuality, or even to be themselves! They feel like they have to hide everything and act a certain way in order to ATTEMPT to gain back the trust they feel they’ve lost even though they’ve done nothing. They fear getting yelled at, getting more trust-earned things taken away from them, etc. Now if there’s one thing kids need now-a-days, it is to be able to confide in their parents with the struggles they are facing in these darkest of times, which is not the same as it was when today’s parents were growing up. A parent cannot ever truly understand how life is as a teen right now, which is why we need them to LISTEN and TRUST them so that they can explain to them how life is. The amount of depression seen in so many normal people (KIDS) these days have SKY ROCKETED and that is all due to how parents are dealing with “handling” their “kids” (particularly teens) now-a-days. Life360? You have changed the world for the worse, and given these control-obsessed parents a tool that only makes them crave control MORE, making kids and teens MISERABLE having to walk on eggshells around their own PARENTS! Want to know where your kids are? Don’t make them get an app that allows you to STALK them. Gain their trust that you won’t explode if they want to go somewhere that you don’t want. Calmly tell them that you aren’t quite comfortable with it yet, and give an alternative to hanging out with those people/going to those places. Trust-earning between parents and a child is a 2-way street. If you want your kid to trust you, you must earn it. Just as they have to earn yours. You can’t expect trust from a child when you don’t deserve it. Communication and trust building is key. Don’t put a tracking device on their phone. Would you rather have trust between your family, and know that your kid is comfortable in their own home, with their own parents? And have THEM tell you where they are rather than some APP? Or stalk them 24/7. I don’t know about you, but I would rather have my kids be comfortable to talk to me and know where they are going and the truth that way, than stalking their phone which they can literally leave places they aren’t just to trick you where they are. Then they go somewhere you don’t want, AND they don’t have a phone in case of emergency. Think smarter. Don’t get you and your family Life360. It’s not worth ruining your family’s relationship.
I got this app about a year ago when I got my phone. My mom heard about it from her friend who has her entire family on it. The minute I got my phone, she told me that I would have to download a tracking app on it if I wanted to use it. At the time, I was 15 with a permit, but not a license, so I couldn’t really go anywhere unless she took me. A couple minutes later, she sent me the link to this app and demanded that I downloaded it.
Before I got my phone, I had an iPod that allowed me to send messages on WiFi. When I went out with friends, I’d always update my mom on where I was and who I was with. If I couldn’t text her, then I would have my friends let her know. That in itself was a little stifling, but I showed my parents that I wasn’t trying to hide anything and showed them they could trust me. I’ve never lied about where I’ve been or who I’ve been with, and yet the first thing to happen when I got my phone was this.
Initially, it was just my mom and I on the app. In addition to feeling like I’d done something wrong or had lost my parents trust, I stopped going out as much because I felt like I’d be constantly questioned. And even though my mom could track my every movement, she still demanded that I text her every update in the plan. Then, my sister got a phone a couple months after that and my mom demanded that she download the app too. Once again, keep in mind that my sister and I have never done anything to lose their trust.
Shortly after that, my dad decided to join the app as well. Now all of us are on it and we can all see where the others are at, right? Wrong. The location mechanics are spotty at best. When my sister and I are at school, we’ll sometimes be shown at random houses in a nearby neighborhood. My parents will also get random notifications in the middle of the night that my sister has left the house when she’s asleep.
The app has turned into an obsession. My dad constantly questions my mom when she leaves work to get lunch, and my mom has since upgraded our subscription to encompass more places and features to track us, even as she acknowledges the inaccuracies in the tracking itself. This app destroys relationships and trust.
I am 17 year old high school senior, my dad made my brother and I get this app when I was 16. From the very first moment I opened the app I hated it. It has caused a huge divide in my family. Just last week I got grounded because Life360 said I was 6 minutes late for curfew, I was not. I have evidence (texts, people etc) who can prove it but my father refuses to listen. I will be uninstalling the app ASAP even though it may result in some severe consequences.
When I am at school, the gps often bounces around, telling my father that I’m not. I’ve had panic attacks in class due to my dad calling over and over again and me being unable to respond knowing what’s in store for when I get home. He called my school and told them I couldn’t be trusted and they needed to keep a special eye on me. I’ve always made straight A’s, never skipped school or even a single class, did extra credit for fun, but I couldn’t be trusted. When my mother died in September 2019 things took a different kind of turn. My dad loosened up and didn’t care as much about where my brother and I were. When I was out with friends he would call me and text me saying I wasn’t where I told him I would be when I was. Life360 would, at times, tell my dad I was up to a mile away from where I said I was. He’s shown up to restaurants because “he needed to know if he could trust me” still no matter how many of his tests I passed he refused to.
You do not know the pain you have caused me and so many other young men and women. Your app constantly gives out wrong information and it’s ripped my family apart. Do the right thing and think about someone other than yourselves.
We got different intents coming here to search for an app to track our partner or friends so it’s advisable to know the truth and not fall prey to the evil ones. I have been in a long distance marriage because of the nature of my job, my husband cheated on me times without number but since I wasn’t around to get him caught red handed in the act I decided to hack his cell phone to get all the data activities on his device. I got in contact with Ghosthacker072(@) gmailcom through the head of the IT department in my workplace. According to him, after a long search on here he got to discover this genius and swift IT personnel, this guy is the best in the game right now. He shared me his contact info, After I got in contact with him, we made a deal and i paid him. I doubted the services at first but what I felt impossible became possible within 6hours,I got access to my husband’s phone activities,I don’t know how he did it but it looked like magic cause it was as if I had his phone in my palm. I got access to his Snapchat messages and videos, WhatsApp,instagram,Facebook,call logs ,video chat , text messages etc all in one swipe. I’m happy I got to discover the truth, knowing is better than self doubt. He is definitely the real deal, do not hesitate to reach out to him at Ghosthacker072(@) gmailcom for a perfect, quality and satisfactory spying and investigatory services.
Honestly I never encourage idea of hacking into people privacy until my cheating husband gave me every reason to go ahead with such. I've been closely noticing his attitude and I really love him, so I was eager. I tried this app it really helped monitoring his location but I needed more proof of his conversations So I contact Mr Craig who was recommended by a close friend and after few hours of contacting him he gave me remote access to husbands phone by providing his number and I saw all his activities and I was able to confirm he was cheating also get enough proof to take legal actions... You can also reach him on

No, it’s quiet a horrible app, it’s gps can randomly bug out, and honestly why are you going to track down you’re child? It’s so sad that parents don’t even trust there own kids, as a kid knowing that there own parents doesn’t trust them, can be quite hurtful the relationship could be destroyed all because the parent for some reason doesn’t trust there child they choose not to talk to them, not to sit down and understand them, find a way where they can ask there child where they are, and not have to worry but no, instead they choose to track them, making sure that there child knows, “I don’t trust you, and am going to track you whenever wherever,” that’s not fudging right, that’s so toxic. Yes there are times when this app can be helpful and not toxic, where the child is okay and knows that the parents trust them, but still wants to make sure, or friends wanting to have each other backs, but forcing a child to do 360 without agreeing, or talking with each other is plain out wrong.
Anyways, thanks for coming to my ted talk, to sisters.
I would leave zero stars if I could. People get this app with good intentions because they either just want to feel safe knowing where their kid is or they feel like they’d want to check in on them from time to time but every family that I know that has this app has the same situation: eventually the parents become obsessed with checking the app and “confirming” what it is that the kids tell them. This obsession directly leads to a complete lack of trust between the family. It makes it impossible for a child to live their life with any sense of freedom and the parents lose the ability to recognize this fact. If you don’t want your kids to talk to you once they become old enough to move out then get this app. If you want to get into endless pointless fights with your child get this app. If you don’t value what is right for your kid then get this app. If this doesn’t sound like you then absolutely refuse everything this app offers.
This seems to be a problem with apps as they grow. You just released an update that removed features/benefits for me unless I pay more! That is dishonest. You made these tiers in spite of the surveys you sent out about a year ago asking people what the would be willing to pay and lose out on. I am willing to be no one answered, “Oh yes please! Charge me a lot more but remove functionality and features. Oh, and definitely add in useless and non-related features do you can try to justify the price increases!”......said no one ever.
You also keep adding things on screen that crowd out and clutter up the map, making it more difficult to see. I have complained about this before, and now it is worse!
So, a formerly favorite app is now 1 star, and I will be checking out different services and equipment to perform the same functions without Life360. The least you could have done is grandfathered in your long time customers.
This app is just bad not only do you have to pay for features but also it invades your privacy like im a good kid i dont go off campus or skip school or ride my bike that far and only go where im told but my dad has the audacity to put this on my phone i under stand the protection side of it right but being 14 almost 15 and also really paranoid im not going to let some one kid nap me im for one very anti social im always aware of my surroundings never even talk to strangers and when i ride my bike its in very public places where nothing will happen and its not even that far away but if your a parent reading this please respect your kids privacy even if they go to crazy parties its part of growing up (im not saying let them go do a bunch of drugs or anything)but just trust them trust to a kid means a lot and this app kills all the trust and bond we have with our parents i feel not trusted at all.
I loved Life 360 when I first got it. It helped me give directions to my children when they were lost, check on locations if they were late coming home (since they couldn’t text and drive). Great to ensure their safety.
However, today, when I opened the app, it refused to locate my child unless I changed my location from “when using” to “active.”
Since it is not my children’s business to know my location, this is not acceptable.
If I try to use the app again, and this occurs, I will be deleting the app from all of our family phones and finding a different app to use.
